PEAK Summer Camp

The Department of Recreational Services at Kent State University is excited to offer our weekly themed camps for its 19th consecutive year.  PEAK Summer Camp is designed for children 6 - 12 years of age, and also offers a Leader-in-Training program for campers 13 - 15 years of age. PEAK Summer Camp is accredited by the American Camp Association.

Each session is facilitated by highly motivated and energetic students and professionals. All camp counselors are certified in American Red Cross First Aid and CPR/AED for the Professional Rescuer. Activities change weekly based on the theme, but the camp follows a similar structure each week; there is also swimming every day. Lunch, snacks and a t-shirt are provided.

There are nine weekly sessions of PEAK Summer Camp beginning June 3 and ending August 9.  Each camp day runs from 9 a.m.  - 4 p.m. Fee for camp is $150 per week ($50 deposit + $100 balance).  Deposits are due at the time of registration for each session.  The balance is due the Wednesday prior to the session enrolled. 

Extended care options are available.  Before care is available starting at 7 a.m. After care is available until 6 p.m. Cost is $20/week for one option and $30/week for both options.

Please note there is no camp during the week of July 4 in observance of Independence Day.
